TREATMENT TECHNIQUES

In a massage therapist’s tool box, a variety of skills and techniques are available to treat different conditions.  Each massage is individualized; each massage is dependent upon the goals of treatment, which dictates what technique(s) will be used.

The following is a list of modalities and techniques that RMTs are taught in the 3,000-hour program.

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE:

• Myofascial Release is an effective technique that provides a whole-body, hands-on approach of evaluation AND treatment.

• Myofascial Release focuses on the fascial system

• The purpose of Myofascial Release is to stretch and loosen tightened layers of fascia to relieve pain, to restore tissue equilibrium, and to restore function

• Myofascial Release helps to improve vertical alignment and to lengthen the body which provides more space for the structures within that area

TRIGGER POINT THERAPY:

• Trigger points are hyper-irritable localized myofascial tissue that perpetuates the pain-tension cycle and can lead to sustained muscle contraction & weakness

• Trigger points are often associated with repetitive strain injuries, poor posture, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, back pain, TMJ, vertigo, and sinus pain

SPORTS MASSAGE:

• Sports massage is tailor-made to each individual athlete

• Pre-event massage is a fast, superficial treatment with the sole goal being to increas blood flow to the muscles, thereby warming the muscle up.

• Post-event massage is a slower and deeper treatment with the focus being on flushing out metabolites (toxins) that have accumulated, thereby the recovery rate is much quicker

• Athletes should receive regular treatments to help restore balance and to deter overuse injuries from happening. Athletic performance can have heartbreaking consequences if joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles are not maintained.
